I was there for a few days in Feb.2000 and found the place to be on the U.S.A. scale of a budget hotel that lost its franchise do to neglect. The loud window AC located in the bedroom wall to the thread thin sheets among other things were enough for me not to stay again. Also, as far as the location being in town that is questionable as it is at least a 15 to 20 min. walk. I returned to San Pedro in July 2000 and will be returning Feb.2001 but in neither case was or is the playador my choice.
